F1 in Schools 2015, SMB Bearings proud to support Torque Racing...

Well, we can't quite believe it but another F1 in Schools race season is upon us!  

We've had a proud association with this event for a number of years now & we relish the opportunity for a number of reasons - not least because it's a wonderful way of valuing future generations & engaging young people with STEM in an exciting & truly innovative way.

Teams of youngsters get together to design & raise funds to build & race their miniature F1 cars against other teams of students in regional, national & international competitions. To progress in the events they also have to have a business model & a winning presentation of all the work they've put in - as competitions go, it is truly epic in scale!

After a number of approaches from various schools, we have decided to offer our support to the lovely folks at Torque Racing F1 this year & we really look forward to bringing you their news & updates as the race season progresses.

Torque Racing F1 team, victors at the regional finals last month...

These dynamic young competitors have already bagged an impressive victory at the regional finals in Birmingham last month & are now striving to repeat their success on a national level.  The team, from Sprowston Community High School, will be in action at the National finals on the 12th-13th March & we wish them every success in their mission & hope that SMB Bearings will play a small part in their success.

We'll be supplying them with precision miniature bearings, as well as technical & social media support to help them on their way to victory.  Click this Post by Torque Racing F1 to see them live in action - but blink & you miss it - so see an image of their regional finals car below :-)
